DETROIT – Michigan's own Olympic gold-medal winning ice dancers are being honored Tuesday by the governor.

During their 17 year ice dance career, Davis and White became the first American ice dance team to win a World Championship, then did it again in 2013. They are also six-time U.S. National Champions, something no ice dance team has ever done before. They won the silver medal at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver Canada in 2010 and of course, just add the Olympic gold medal to their trophy case.

Davis and White have decided against competing in the World Championships later this month in Japan. They have not said whether they are done competing altogether. The two will do Stars on Ice which will be at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit on April 27.
